9780071600316: Prescription Alternatives:Hundreds of Safe, Natural, Prescription-Free Remedies to Restore and Maintain Your Health, Fourth Edition

“For those who need to know what doctors and pharmaceutical companies are doing to people's health . . . this belongs in the library of every home.”
-- Lendon H. Smith, M.D., author of Feed Your Body Right

Prescription Alternatives is an easy-to-use, immediate reference for all the information you need about how medications affect your body, what you can do to counteract imbalances, and what alternative treatments work best. “FDA approved” doesn't mean it's safe!

  • Prescription drugs can deplete the body of essential vitamins and minerals
  • Studies show that H2 blockers for heartburn can cause bone loss
  • Drugs to treat diabetes can increase risk of heart disease and death

Covering the major prescription drugs in use today and their dangerous side effects, natural health expert Dr. Earl Mindell lays the foundation for a sound body with safer alternatives to these medicines.

New drugs and natural alternatives for:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity-related ailments
  • Asthma
  • ADD

Review:

Each year, 140,000 Americans die from the adverse effects of prescription drug use, and 938,000 Americans are "injured" due to prescription and dispensing errors. Eleven million people are abusing prescription drugs. Drug companies are forming "alliances" with HMOs to control the drugs you take, often at the expense of simpler, cheaper, and healthier lifestyle changes. No wonder alternative-medicine crusader Earl Mindell, author of Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible and Earl Mindell's Herb Bible, wants you to inform yourself and take control of your treatment. "Physicians ... are trained to diagnose a disease and find a pill to treat it with," he says. It's up to us, the patients, to investigate the potential side effects of our prescription drugs and alternatives to taking them.

Prescription Alternatives is a layperson's crash course in prescription drugs and alternative treatments, such as dietary changes and nutritional supplements. Mindell covers drug interactions, how to read labels and inserts, and how to avoid abuse. He discusses prescription drugs and alternative treatments in detail for heart disease, digestive diseases, respiratory illnesses, pain relief, infections, sleep disorders, depression, diabetes, eye diseases, prostate enlargement, hormone replacement, osteoporosis, and herpes. This is information you won't get from your HMO--and in this case, what you don't know can hurt you. --Joan Price
